    Pros

    Great tech support
    Cheap cafeteria
    Caring and kind manager

    Cons

    Little on-boarding or support
    Everyone guards own work with little desire for collaboration
    Seems like best way to keep job is to keep head down.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on on boarding process and building teams that are willing to listen and proactively move, instead of relying on status quo.

    Pros

    Danaher Business Systems teaches you how to measure everything possible and cut costs at every level within the organization. These actions result in delivering outstanding OP every quarter while bleeding acquired companies dry.

    Cons

    As a result, employees are sacrificial, innovation is dead. Employee engagement takes the form of cake and parties, not career advancement and empowerment. Power struggles between engineering and marketing leaders, has paralyzed the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Take the blinders off, replace senior management with leaders that focus on growing the business and employees.

    Good initial products but gave up on development of the enterprise solutions

    A lot of changes in territories that resulted in a slowdown in momentum and to many distractions.

    New owners & management will now make the decisions for how the Fluke brad survives.

    Great people. Everyone helps each other out - awesome teamwork and great talented engineers. The team here is among the top I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Part of company will go to NetScout and part will remain with Fluke. Depending on the part you are on, you likely have different things in store for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication high to keep the great talented engineers engaged. You don't want to lose them to chaos and major disruptions while you figure out your new strategies.

    Good salary and benefits. Interesting work.

    Time stops when you are at Fluke. The job you get when you start is the job you will have after 10 years. Check your ambitions at the door.

    I have been working at Fluke Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get paid, until you get laid off.

    Lots of parking spaces.

    Free bad coffee.

    Cons

    For career development, it’s a dead end. No one had ever heard of Fluke Networks or Danaher. The place has zero resume value.

    The things you learn are valueless outside Danaher, and you will never want to work for another Danaher company after serving time here.

    The company is stranded with trailing edge technologies in shrinking markets. When you try to find another job other companies will dismiss you as obsolete.

    The politics are brutal, although amusing if you avoid getting involved. A raft of semi-competent and incompetent people jockey for visibility to what is without doubt the worst management team in America.

    The Everett location is on the far fringe of nowhere.

    The sale of part of the company to NetScout will probably lead to more layoffs. The recombination of the remainder with the moribund Fluke Industrial will certianly lead to more layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Can you please fire youselves?
